What does special education mean?

If your child is placed in an LSEN (Learner special education needs) program or special school it means that your child does not have the intellectual ability to cope with the standardised curriculum offered in other schools.  Special education is designed specifically for students with special needs.  

Special education is the practice of educating students in a way that address their individual and/or very special needs.  Most schools offering special education also offer a fully adapted curriculum.
